What's your favorite brand of chocolate?

What's your favorite brand of chocolate?

I'm a sucker for Cadbury....Dove would be next.

I'm still debating over the whole Hershey's vs Nestle's thing..I might have to buy a bar of each tomorrow and have a taste test..

Call me crazy but I was not all that impressed with Godiva....don't get me wrong, I'll still buy a bar when I see one (can we say chocoholic???) but it's not on my top list.

I am not impressed either! I have found these other things called Nibby Bars.. .I am not sure who makes them, but they had tiny pieces of cocoa in them and they are scrumptious!!! I get these at a whole foods type store... I will try to get better info on them next time I get one.

I am bad....I has some of her Hershey's kisses, she wont notice. She's actually my step daughter and we only get her every other weekend, so the candy sticks around for a LONG time...unless I raid it...

Godiva is only really good with dark chocolate, IMO. I havn't had cadburry in a long time, since I was very young, so I don't remember enough about it... but I know I like Hershey's and Dove alot. Nestle doesn't even deserve to be compared. Nestle just puts a bunch of chrisped rice and wafers and other kinds of cookies into all of their chocolate, but they hardly even sell chocolate as just chocolate.

I just had a Cadbury egg....heavenly....their Caramelos are the best.

Nestles has a plant in my hometown...they bought out Carnation so I am somewhat partial to them. I have NOT had a plain Nestle's bar in ages though. I will say that I do prefer their baking chips the best, though...
